WILLIE YOUNG RUMORS & GOSSIP

Chicago Bears: Final offseason moves they should make

The Chicago Bears have had an aggressive offseason, bolstering an injury-plagued defensive unit that had the worst run defense last year along with only thirty sacks. When you look at the 2014 defense on paper, it is hard not to get excited about a possible return to a hard-nosed, “Monsters of the Midway” style of play.

Lions DE Willie Young taunts Tom Brady

Detroit Lions DE Willie Young decided to taunt New England Patriots QB Tom Brady after his pass went for an incompletion during Thursday’s preseason game.  I guess Young is unaware of the fact that this was a preseason game.  Young was also flagged on the play for taunting, negating the 3rd down incompletion and giving the Patriots a first down.

Lions need big year from Willie Young

No more Mr. August. This is the year defensive end Willie Young has to produce for the Detroit Lions when it counts. A year ago, Young was anointed by many as the breakout player to watch following a standout preseason.
